Laurence Anholt - All books by this author

Anholt’s Artists Books for Children - All books in this series

Barron’s introduces another fine title to the highly-acclaimed Anholt’s Artists Books for Children series. Here, award-winning author and illustrator Laurence Anholt reviews the life of Marc Chagall. Through the stories that he tells his beloved twin grandchildren, Chagall relates his extraordinary rags to riches journey from a topsy-turvy cottage life in Russia, through the dark years of the war, emerging in the sparkling sunlight of Southern France. Anholt’s fine illustrations appear on every page and include reproductions of Chagall’s work. Once again, Laurence Anholt inspires and informs in this much-loved series, which has sold more than one million copies around the world. (Ages 4–8)

From the Reviews:
“Anholt is a prolific children's author, and he illustrates winsomely as well. An h a l t's portrait of Chagall, tol d as a picture­book tale, is sure to win kids over. Recommended for preschoolers through third-graders, it could easily promote discussions about emotions, war, imagination and dreams. The reproductions of some of the artist's most brilliant pieces are rich in color…”
Arts & Activities, April 2015

“Loose, warm ink-and-watercolor paintings depict children and grandfather against relaxing expanses of white space, with dream-bubble insets illustrating Chagall’s memories. Reproductions of some of his more famous paintings are incorporated….Anholt’s simple narrative approach works well… an engaging entry in a winning series.”
Kirkus Reviews, February 2014

“Anholt’s colorful, squiggly artwork complements Chagall’s own paintings, six of which are reproduced in the story. Several of Anholt’s illustrations echo Chagall’s works—both in composition and style—which makes for a pleasing mix.”
